How To Get What You Really Want In Life

We all want to get the most out of life and dreams and goals are important. As of late I look at life a bit differently and I wanted to share a perspective for you to consider. I am hoping it will help you sift through what is most important in your life with greater ease.

I shared in my last article how feeling relaxed, confident and empowered actually helps your body to grow younger. 

Acquiring a relaxed mind that supports rejuvenation might not be at the top of everyone’s “wish list.” Most likely it’s a new job, car, relationship, house or financial security or something else like that. I know that was certainly true for me at one time. A great thing to ask yourself when you have a goal is, “Why do I really want it?” you may be surprised by the answer. Let me explain: Normally, we desire some thing or circumstance because there is always secret anticipation that it will make us feel happier, better, smarter, more respected, or more loved. No one wants a new car and then imagines himself being sorely disappointed in it, or looking less attractive, or being less respected as a result of having it. No, the person imagines himself shinier, happier, and more successful. The tendency is to think that THINGS will increase our happiness, and we come by this honestly. If we watch television long enough, we learn that if we buy new shoes or clothes, we’ll feel confident and better looking; however, eventually the shoes and the clothes come off and we feel as confident or unconfident as we did before.

Really, it’s the feeling of confidence that we’re after, and this is where the true gold is in terms of our health and rejuvenation…honestly FEELING GREAT in any situation! Acquire that and the rest is just the icing on the cake. Feeling genuine confidence is something that comes from the inside, not from

acquiring things. The tools I share in my coaching will help you regain the true riches in life—rejuvenating feelings!

There’s nothing wrong with wanting physical things in life; however, knowing that feeling good is the prime factor for keeping your inner fountain of youth running smoothly should put acquiring these feelings at the top of our wish list. Think of the last thing you wanted to acquire or accomplish—what was the “feeling” you were hoping to get from having or accomplishing it?

How long did the feeling last after you achieved or acquired it?

Live joyfully and fully.

Good luck and good health.
